... attorney lingo?!?!
Quick back story: stbx not accepting or declining my last offer of settlement and is dicking around on his production of documents = divorce not moving forward. So, my choice is to set for trial or dismissed without prejudice.
I want him to pay child support (he does through our temporary court orders); pay for half of the children's medical bills; pay for half of the credit cards; and set up a payment plan to pay me the money he owes me.
I receiving this email from my attorney:
Hi dmari, I have attached our first and second Rule 68 Offers of Settlement to them and their 8/22/13 second offer to us. Perhaps you can use these to formulate your position for the Motion to Set. Please email me your position on the issues in Word and I will work with you on it. A trial position is what you are requesting the Judge order at trial, not a settlement position. Thank you.
I asked him to clarify and received this:
Yes, a trial position is not a compromise position like a settlement position. [/bold
But I am still confused as to what exactly I am supposed to write up. I know my attorney said he would work with me on it but I would like have a better idea from you folks who have BTDT as to what the hell I am writing about.
Please help if you can. Thank you so much!
